ICELAND supermarket in Cowdenbeath is set to close.

The Times has learned that the popular shop on High Street will shut next month on Saturday, August 12.

It has not been disclosed how many jobs will be impacted by the closure.

An Iceland spokesperson said: “The Cowdenbeath store closes on August 12.

"Across Iceland and The Food Warehouse we have a portfolio of over UK 1,000 stores, and our retail estate has grown by nearly 200 stores over the last ten years.

"We typically open more than 20 new stores each year, creating many new jobs and contributing to the growth of local economies.

"At the same time, we continually review the retail experience offered to our customers and have always made a small number of store closures every year, as local shopping patterns change and shop leases expire.

"The business is currently trading very strongly, achieving record market shares.

"Customers can find their closest Iceland and The Food Warehouse stores here.”
